Goodbye Christopher Robin is no more; Fox Searchlight’s upcoming father-son drama is now known simply as The Untitled A.A. Milne Project, but the studio has today unveiled our first look at Domhnall Gleeson and Margot Robbie to cushion the blow.

Hailing from USA Today, Gleeson is set to swap Star Destroyers and enraged Sith Lords to play the part of A.A. Milne, the celebrated children’s author and father who crafted such beloved characters as Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore and Piglet, and scores of childhood memories as a result. Robbie, meanwhile, is attached to the part of Milne’s wife, Daphne, with Kelly Macdonald rounding out the preliminary cast as Olive, the family’s nanny.

Set long before Gleeson’s writer struck gold with Winnie the Pooh, Fox’s picture, one helmed by Simon Curtis (Woman in Gold, My Week With Marilyn), is more »
